Wendtii tend to send out babies across the tank lol. My windtii red does this quite often. And it is a PAIN to dig them all out

You could always move it lol they can get big, and the root system is very large.

You can also just snip the runner. That way the baby plant wont get any nutrients from the parent and take longer to root itself strongly. Might make it easier to move if you chose that route.

My tank would be nothing but crypts if I didn't remove some now and then. I've got wendtii reds that spread almost as quickly as the sag. grass. The runners can sometimes reach a fair distance before the plantlet comes up. On the good side I won't have to purchase these for my next tank to be started soon.

I don't have experience with other crypts. Do they spread less quickly?
